You might be wondering what the Attitude Era in wrestling is. Well, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) used this term to describe its programming during the ‘Monday Night Wars’. WWF’s Monday Night Raw also marks this period, in which wrestlers went head-to-head with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) stars. Many wrestling stars rose to stardom during this period, including Triple H, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, and Chyna. Many people believe that the Attitude Era was not a time for good physiques in WWE, but there are plenty of wrestlers with fantastic bodies. We’ve compiled a list of wrestlers with the best physique from the Attitude Era.
Best known by the ring name Val Venis, Sean Allen Morely undoubtedly had the best body in the WWE’s Attitude Era. He was pretty famous in the wrestling world even before his WWE debut in 1998. He wrestled in Japan, Canada, and Puerto Rico before appearing in the WWE. There were several chiseled superstars of this era, but his physique was several notches above. He pulled off a gimmick of an adult film star as well during his show times. Venis was successful in the Attitude Era, thanks to his muscular figure that looked incredible as an adult star.
Dwayne Johnson, The Rock, needs no introduction to his name, as he has the best physique in Hollywood right now. He still had the best body in the Attitude Era. The Rock’s form may have lacked well-defined abs, but he still looked like a top star. His broad shoulders and great-looking chest made it up for the lack of abs. The Rock is among the greatest of all time due to his great body, persona, and mic skills. He portrayed a comical gimmick named Rocky Maivia, which was the amalgamation of his father and grandfather’s names.
The Attitude Era would not have been possible without McMahon. His ring name was Mr. McMahon, flaunting a gimmick based on his real-life personality. Mr. McMahon frequently wrestled in the Attitude Era and even won a WWE Championship title once. You may have seen the evil boss in a suit most of the time, but he didn’t shy away from showing off his amazing physique whenever he wrestled. Even though he was in his 50s during the Attitude Era, his muscular body still challenged many young talents on the roster.
